SIN CITY 2: A DAME TO KILL FOR Trailer – Finally! SIN CITY is Back
Sin City is where you go in with your eyes open. Or you don’t come out at all.
It took long enough. Robert Rodriguez wowed audiences all the way back in 2005 with the original “Sin City,” a hyper-stylized noir based on Frank Miller’s graphic novels of the same name. Now, nine years later, Rodriguez and Miller return to Basin City with Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
The teaser opens with everybody’s favorite brute Marv (Mickey Rourke, in a role that helped relaunch his career) flying through the air, saying “Just another Saturday night.” For Marv, it sure is. When isn’t he getting beat up, or beating someone up? For the rest of us, seeing Rourke back as Marv is nothing short of fanboy heaven.
We’re then introduced to some of the new faces in Basin City, including a bruised and battered Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Johnny, Ray Liotta, Eva Green and Josh Brolin, taking over for Clive Owen as Dwight. Don’t worry, though. All the familiars are back. Jessica Alba, Powers Boothe, Bruce Willis, Jaime King, Rosario Dawson, you name it, they’re back.
The trailer gives very little indication about what A Dame to Kill For is about, but it probably follows the Sin City graphic novel of the same name, so anyone familiar with that should know the plot for the film. The teaser mostly just serves as a tasty re-introduction to the seedy world of Basin City, a great place to visit but an awful place to live. Plus, who cares? It’s Sin freakin’ City!
Rodriguez really needs A Dame to Kill For to hit, especially after Machete Kills fizzled, and it should. He almost waited too long for a sequel to arguably his best film, but seeing that footage makes the wait that much sweeter.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For hits theaters on August 14.
